Is there a way to get the European GSM phone into a US spec R? I might be moving overseas, and I'd like to take the R to the autobahn. Since talking on your cell phone is verboten, is it possible to fit the original phone into the car?<p>If so, where can i get one stateside?

The SYNC systems in Fords, Infiniti's and Lexus's systems among others are lightyears ahead in terms of voice quality. The dealer replaced the entire system because of my complaints, same deal. I replaced the mic with one from a different Motorola kit (the Volvo kit is made by Motorola) and fiddled with placement options all over the car and came to find the "best it can be" location, but to be honest it still pales in comparison to the integrated Volvo phone systems in the EU, the 2009+ built-in bluetooth systems by Volvo and many others. Perhaps I just expect too much from it...
